1. This Sunday is Communion with some great music.
2. Next Sunday we begin a new message series on the life of Elijah. Beginning in 1 Kings 16, we’ll go verses-by-verse in this teaching series.
3. VBS ends tonight. It’s been a great week for the kids… and a lot of hard work for the people who made it happen. Great job to everyone!
5. I’m reading this book – Not a Fan – authored by Kyle Idleman. The emphasis of the book is to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ instead of a mere fan. The author talks about surrender, repentance, and brokenness which is a stark contrast to the shallow, bumper-sticker religion of today. The book was suggested to me by Sidney Gill last Sunday who told me she had been reading it during the Discipleship series I had been teaching. The language of the book is very similar to that series too. I wish I had discovered this book sooner, it would have been a great resource. If you like a penetrating message that stabs at the core of casual Christianity, this book is for you. Highly recommended.
Our small group did a bible study based on this book last year. It was very eye opening with lots of self examination. It was phenomenal! I highly recommend it.
I ordered this book from Amazon. It arrived yesterday. I cannot put it down.
